at states that i think you are going to see mitt romney with a great opportunity to win these states. charles: representative blackburn, you know, there's no doubt the first debate, you know, changed everything for mitt romney. it feels, though, that maybe the second and thirds were lost opportunities, certainly that amazing momentum that he had. you can't argue that it hasn't stalled, which brings us to this toss-up scenario. is there any sort of anxiety out there among your party that golly, you know, just maybe one thing could have been different, this would be a no-brainer right now? >> you know, i'm not so sure that saying it has stalled is the right word, charles. i think what's happened, mainstream media, all the attention has gone to the storm. but what is happening on the ground in these states is volunteers are going door-to-door, working from the bottom up, the grassroots up, hammering out this victory. it is really the network of you, individuals and their friends that are bringing this victory home for mitt romney and they are doing it one person, one door, one visit at

storm that has really paralyze this region, romney had the momentum. by friday, saturday who will have the big mark? >> i don't think this changes the momentum. it freezes it. a fourth of the country, everyone is preoccupied with there daily lives. nothing is changed in the fundamental dynamics of this race. put it out. the president of the united states is tied with romney 46 test 46. that is a dangerous number for the incumbent more than romney because if an incumbent is below 50% traditionally almost everyone who is not for him is either going to stay home of four for the challenger. obama at 46% shows he is slipping into underdog status as we speak. gerri: the me show you another, as long as you're talking polls, we have one, the national average. and obama is at 47%. i did he'd. gretchen, you know, here is what i don't understand. i thought that people made up their mind as the campaign progressed, but it seems that most people, like you, who are expert watchers of this campaign say lots of people change their mind right up to voting day. >> to we had seen that in the past. we hav

victory rally. they may not have had time to change that. i'll give them a pass on that. romney's video bio was played. not so bad if you ask me. then the donation was required to meet romney but a lot of people had already turned in their donations or had not brought them in. how did they solve that? the campaign brought in $5,000 worth of donations so it appeared that people came in with donations so they would hand them canned goods an said here, hand this romney and we'll take a picture. it's transparent when you see what's going on. thehow is the race going on? the democrats seem very confident. here is morning joe. >> i will come on morning joe and i will shave off off my mustache of 40 years. >> cenk: well, are they in danger or are they not in danger? for questions that epic where do we go?
